Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Let's face it, Bad Kitty is incorrigible. Now she and Puppy are on rampage, destroying house, home; not to mention, Baby's sleep. After all this ruckus, our feline felon has been sentenced to obedience school, but that's no guarantee that our favorite little renegade will become perfect. Now in trade paperback.

Publishers Weekly
Bad Kitty (and her attitude) are back in her sixth illustrated chapter book, and roughhousing has earned both her and Puppy a trip to Diabla Von Gloom's School for Wayward Pets. Throughout, Bruel has fun defying readers' expectations: despite the teacher's name (and that the school resembles a haunted mansion), she's patient and kind, believing there is no such thing as "bad" pets. And despite Bad Kitty's reputation, she might be right. Chapters take readers through school day activities that range from arts and crafts time (while Puppy is a dog of few words, it turns out he's a savant when it comes to art and music) to show and tell (Bad Kitty's contribution: a hairball). Additional comedy comes from two classmates, an ill-mannered rabbit who believes he's a "mutant supervillain," and a temperamental cat-hating bulldog, who has decided that Bad Kitty is actually a cow (much to the cat's relief). Facts about cat-dog interaction—courtesy of a familiar face, Uncle Murray—are a bonus, but as usual it's Bad Kitty's personality that rules the day. Ages 7–10. Agent: Jennie Dunham, Dunham Literary. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Greta Holt
"Splort!"Puppy drools on Bad Kitty while she is trying to get a mid-day nap. Bad Kitty cannot take it anymore and the fight is on. Baby accidentally rolls over on his head while the two animals chase one another. The result: behavior school for Puppy and Bad Kitty. Laden with a huge backpack of "?Love, love angel kitten" stuff (yuck,) poor Bad Kitty and the drooling Puppy head for the school bus. Children, whether reading the story or experiencing it with an adult, will empathize with the two characters as they sit beside strange classmates on the bus: the rabbit who calls himself Super Mutant Villain, and the bulldog who intones, "I hate cats." From this point the story could have taken a dark alley by centering on a mean teacher, which the characters fear may happen. The light shines, though, when the happy teacher, who wishes to be called Miss Dee, welcomes the misfits to her behavioral school. Miss Dee tells the baddies right away that she is sure they are all good pets, even the huffing, hissing Bad Kitty. The book progresses through the school day and highlights the lessons each animal learns about being a respectable pet. The rabbit is wonderfully nuts, and the bulldog provides a way for Bad Kitty to show that she is not so bad. The students experience a full day of such activities as show-and-tell and story time. Occasionally, the plot is interrupted by Uncle Murray's Fun Facts, which provide real information about cats and dogs. Bruel's illustrations are wacky, yet accessible. Because the behavioral concepts are understandable but the tone satyric, the series can be shared among various age groups: adults will like reading with youngsters, and older youth will appreciate the use of irony. Part of the "Bad Kitty" series. Reviewer: Greta Holt

    Nick Bruel doesn't disappoint.

    This is probably my favorite Bad Kitty book. The story is heart-warming with the typical Bad Kitty humor.

    Bad Kitty and Puppy have crossed the line! With Kitty¿s grumpine

    Bad Kitty and Puppy have crossed the line! With Kitty’s grumpiness and Puppy’s drooling problem, (and their constant fighting) it’s no surprise that they are sent to Diabla Von Gloom’s School for Wayward Pets. There, the dueling duo meet Miss Dee, a very kind teacher, Petunia, a very tough bull-dog who HATES!!! cats, and DR. LAGOMORPH, a diabolical mutant supervillian bunny whose arch-enemies are Captain Fantasticat and Power Mouse (A.K.A. Weird Kitty and the little mouse). Kitty and Puppy go through events at school, like Arts & Crafts and Story time. Puppy seems to be trying his best but Kitty is not cooperating (plus she is really scared Petunia will figure out she’s really a cat and not a cow ;) ). Miss Dee likes Kitty and tries to help her be good, but Kitty is not sure she wants to be friends with the other pets in obedience school.

    First I have to say I am a HUGE fan of Mr. Bruel’s books. I have met Mr. Bruel a couple of times at book signings I went to and he is a very nice person and is always very kind and takes time to talk to me. My favorite Bad Kitty adventure so far is “Bad Kitty Vs. Uncle Murray” and I have to say – this one is my new favorite! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I love the humor! Mr Bruel seemed to have packed even more humor into this Bad Kitty adventure. I love the pictures and Uncle Murray’s fun facts (Uncle Murray is the school bus driver)! I love the awesome characters of Dr. Lagomorph and Petunia, they are hysterical! I think Dr. Lagomorph is the best character in the book (besides Bad Kitty and Puppy), and probably the funniest! Like all the other Bad Kitty books, this one has a nice message in it. Bad Kitty really ends up helping all the other pets in school and is kind to them. I love how Mr. Bruel always has a good message in his books.
    **Note I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the funniest of all the Bad Kitty books so far.  The bunny is especially hilarious.  My 6 year old daughter loves when I read this to her  with different voices for each character.  It is a testiment to how good this book is that my daughter will very often read this again on her own, long after I've already put her to bed for the night.
